Martha Nussbaum may be one of the most well-respected living philosophers in the world today. For years, she’s investigated how emotions shape our thoughts and political systems. In her latest book, “Anger and Forgiveness,” she explores the corrosive effect anger plays in our relationships, politics and criminal justice systems. She tells Steve Paulson that retribution and payback aren't compatible with true justice.
